I briefly admire the design in my cappuccino foam before I decimate it with copious amounts of sugar. The weather is perfect for sitting outside on the patio at Expresso Post in Collingwood. This is my Tuesday ritual with my husband Richard. We talk about business, we connect with local people and life slows to a leisurely pace. Right now I am not defined as a mother or a photographer or a small business owner, I’m just someone enjoying a coffee. Everything seems manageable in this moment.
